Are Bargain Block houses sold furnished?

The renovated houses on Bargain Block are sold just as they are staged, with furniture and décor, when Evan and Keith are done with them.

Home renovation shows like Bargain Block are popular because they offer viewers inspiration and entertainment for the whole family.

However, one of the things that set Bargain Block apart from other similar shows is the fact that Evan and Keith focus on making their houses extremely affordable and they are sold fully furnished and decorated.

Why do people watch shows like Bargain Block?

Bargain Block is one of the many home renovation shows on television, but it still managed to attract nearly 20 million total views in its first season on HGTV.

Although Bargain Block is slightly different from most of the other shows on the channel because its focus is on inexpensive houses in the Detroit area, the reasons why people enjoy watching home renovation shows remains the same.

Shows like Bargain Block provide inspirations for homeowners who want to invest in their own properties, but they are also just good, low-commitment entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.

Are Bargain Block houses sold furnished?

Bargain Block originally started airing on HGTV in 2021 and it has since become one of the most popular shows on the channel for a reason.

Unlike many of the other home renovation shows on this channel, where homes may end up looking absolutely beautiful, with state-of-the-art fixtures and appliances by the end of an episode, but they are clearly out of most people’s budgets at that stage, Bargain Block prides itself in creating homes that are ideal for first-time buyers.

The Bargain Block hosts and real-life couple and business partners, Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas, are also the carpenter and designer on the show.

They focus on purchasing old and run-down houses for incredibly low prices, so that they can sell the houses as complete staged homes when they are done with the renovations on the show.

The duo has become well-known for their creative plans to cut costs during their renovations.

Moreover, Evan’s various DIY projects and furniture restorations are a large part of how they manage to sell these homes exactly the way they are staged, with décor and furniture and all, at such an affordable price once they have completed the renovations on the show.

Of course, the fact that Keith and Evan have their own design firm with the help of Detroit-based real estate agent, Shea Hicks-Whitfield, who helps them sell these unique homes, is part of what has made the show and their business such a success.

How does the Bargain Block team keep their houses so affordable?

Since Evan and Keith are so determined to sell their renovated homes, furnished and complete for under $100 000 each, the duo need to be laser focused on their budget throughout the entire renovation process.

This means that they need to purchase low-cost homes from the Detroit Landbank, stay in the homes while they renovate them so that they can do most of the work themselves, and get thrifty with art projects and custom-made furniture to get the houses ready to sell.

Why do fans love the finished houses on Bargain Block so much?

One of the things that has really set Bargain Block apart from other shows on HGTV and that has become a trademark for Evan and Keith’s renovations is the fact that they give every house quite a distinct and unique personality.

This has even earned a few of the houses that were renovated on the show nicknames like “The Weird House” and “The Doll House.”

Furthermore, it has attracted many first-time buyers that do not want cookie-cutter designs to these properties.

Where can you buy similar furniture to the style on the show?

If you are a fan of Bargain Block and of Evan and Keith’s signature design style, buying a fully-furnished and decorated Detroit home from the duo may not be your only option to get this look for your own home.

Keith and Evan’s design firm’s website, Nine Design + Homes, also features a “Shop” tab, where you can purchase similar items to those that the duo creates for the homes that they renovate on the show.

This includes custom, handmade art and décor pieces, as well as items like stools, rugs, statues and more, which all have the same aesthetic and style that Keith’s handmade work does on the show.

In addition to this online store, Keith and Evan also have a physical brick-and-mortar store in Detroit where they sell some of these similar items, as well as other handmade items from local artisans.
